Crow on the Snowbank

Chester and I had our walk along the Red River this morning and Chester spotted a crow on one of the snowbanks.  It was hard taking a picture of the crow, since Chester wanted to go after him – birds are meant to be chased, aren’t they?  But he was far enough away that he didn’t seem bothered by Chester’s bouncing.  🙂

Of course, he wouldn’t turn around to look a us, so I snapped another one to show a bit more of the snow.

The snow has melted a lot in the last few days, with the temperatures hovering just around the freezing mark and you can see how the colour is getting quite dirty now and there is still obviously lots to melt yet.  But today it will start getting colder again to day – right now it is -8C and will be dropping to -20C by night time.  They are saying it should get back up to zero by Wednesday.
